How to track your Blogger stats with Google Analytics


Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, Blogspot Integration?

After going through the integration options offered by all 4, here's what I've come up with so far:

Post to Facebook
- nothing else
- there are options to share this updates with Tumblr and Twitter, but I like using the Photo and Link update options and I don't like how they're displayed on Tumblr/Twitter.

Post to Tumblr
- goes to Twitter (doesn't get posted on Facebook)

Post to Blogspot
- goes to Facebook (notes section)
- goes to Twitter

Post to Twitter
- goes to Facebook
- goes to sidebar on Blogspot (-->)
- goes to Tumblr

So far, Twitter's winning as my preferred method of updating.

Snow Leopard Made Me Love My Laptop Again

Jason Kottke recently wrote about "The Apple upgrade problem", wherein he posits that the problem with upgrading is that the new system runs pretty much like the old system.

"Meet the new boss; same as the old boss" - The Who
I'd say it's a matter of perspective. If you upgrade your hardware relatively often, then you're basically getting incremental advances over the previous technology. If you're like me, on the other hand, and you have a Macbook Pro that was built in early 2007, then Snow Leopard feels like a breath of fresh air.

Until recently, I much preferred using my iMac (late 2008) because it felt snappier. With Snow Leopard, I've taken to carrying my laptop around the house again.

So while it looks pretty much the same as it did under Leopard, I'm definitely using Snow Leopard a whole lot more.

On a side note, if anyone would like to loan me $2500 for a new unibody MBP, I would definitely appreciate it.
